OPEN ACCESS AND THE LEVY LIBRARY PRESS

As part of our remote learning Drop-In Mini Sessions series, librarian Carrie Levinson recently taught Open Access and The Levy Library PressThis session gave an overview of the Open Access (OA) publishing model and how it differs from the traditional model of scholarly publishing. Also covered was the topic of predatory Open Access publishers, an opportunistic model that exploits the need for academic publishing, and how to recognize them. You can find the recording of this session below: 
 

 

A complimentary session to Open Access and The Levy Library Press is Introduction to Authors' Rights, coming up on Thursday, May 28th. This 30-minute Zoom session will help participants learn about their rights as an author and producer of scholarly works. This session will cover: 

  • Copyright basics
  • Journal options and policies
  • Negotiating when signing publisher agreements
  • Self-archiving your work

JOAL NOW INDEXED

The Levy Library Press is pleased to announce that the Journal of Altmetrics (JOAL) is now indexed in the Dimensions research platform and in Google Scholar. The indexing of JOAL will help to make the journal more accessible and bring important altmetrics research to a wider audience. 

Every Journal of Altmetrics article is assigned a unique DOI to make it discoverable on these platforms. The mission of the Journal of Altmetrics, an Open Access journal, is to advance the understanding of the influence of altmetrics on the development of impact indicators and/or their ability to compliment or predict traditional metrics.
